Here’s a comparison of the original Soviet processing of the first Venera-15 radar swath (above) and my own processing of the data, from radio hologram to image.  One thing I have not done is compensate for the antenna pattern, so my image goes more dark at the edges.

This data was acquired by the spacecraft on October 16, 1983, during a pass over the north pole of Venus.
